HelpSystems Acquires Agari

HelpSystems announced today the acquisition of Agari, a recognized leader in enterprise solutions protecting against advanced email threats. Agari has seen notable growth with its Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, which sets the standard for protecting organizations against phishing, business email compromise, and email threats. In light of today’s complex security environment and increased cybercrime, this is a key capability for organizations in all industries, which is why HelpSystems continues to focus on enhancing its data security suite via adjacent acquisitions.

Despite the growth in cyberattacks through other vectors, email remains the most common channel for costly data breaches and cybercrime. Agari solutions detect, defend against, and respond to email attacks by using massive data sets, data science, and the power of cloud computing.

Agari was a founding member of the industry consortium that developed the Domain Message Authentication Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) email authentication standard. This critical initiative enables organizations to authenticate email from their domains to prevent cybercriminals from impersonating their brand, helping them protect their customers and partners from email attacks.

In connection with this transaction, JMP Securities LLC served as financial advisor to Agari, and Cowen served as financial advisor to HelpSystems.
